Walter Maschinenbau Next generation Helitronic Vision grinding machine
Germany – Walter Machines’ new generation Helitronic Vision 400 L high-performance tool grinding machine is designed for machining rotationally symmetrical precision tools such as cutters, hob cutters, drills, step drills, profile tools, woodworking tools made of HM, HSS, ceramic, cermet and CBN.
The machine is based on the established Helitronic Vision machine and has an identical work area. It features linear drives in the linear axes and torque motors in the rotation axes. The 400 L produces tools with a circumferential machining length of up to 420 mm and diameters from three to 315 mm.
Walter claims that its polymer or mineral casting machine base, extremely rigid design and digital drives enable virtually vibration-free precision grinding. A belt-drive spindle can provide automated changing of grinding wheel sets.
The wheel changer is capable of changing grinding wheels up to 254 mm diameter and up to 24 grinding wheel sets. The tool changer is a 6-axis CNC Fanuc robot.
